IS THERE A MORTGAGE 
ON YOUR PROPERTY? 



Suppose you are called by death — might not there 
be a foreclosure and the property you have labored to 
acquire be lost to your family? 

It is not necessary to live in the shadow of such a 
dread. 

There is an easy way out. For a slight increase in 
the interest rate you can have the amount of the mort- 
gage covered by insurance on your life so that in event 
of your death the property will not be lost. The insur- 
ance money will pay the mortgage so that the property 
will be saved for your dear ones. 

In addition you secure that high grade service, 
which pavs all claims with unrivaled dispatch, if you

Upstairs Store Saves Men 

Money on Quality Clothes 




HAS NO GROUND FLOOR RENT AND EXPENSES 
The great success of the above store for men and young 
men proves in a striking way the truth of the old saying that, 
when one store gives more value for the price than do others, 
the public will soon make a beaten path to it's door. 

Started on a small scale in 1916 by Christ Rose and F. P. 
Barker, men well known for their honesty and fair dealing, it 
has grown by leaps and bounds, and now ranks as one of Fort 
Wayne's leading men's stores. There is none more reliable; 
none where men get so much real value for their money. 

Doing all it's business upstairs, there is no big ground-floor 
rent to pay; no huge ground-floor expenses to meet; no costly 
show windows to maintain. Fancy, high-priced fixtures are 
not needed. All this means a great saving which comes off 
the prices. 

It is the Wayne Clothes Shop, 714 Calhoun Street, just op- 
posite the Court House.

DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC 

AND FORT WAYNE'S PIONEER SPINOGRAPHER 

Graduated with high honors and recipient of gold medal from Ross College of Chiropractic, 
Fort Wayne, Ind. Since returning from Service with U. S. Army Medical Department from overseas 
the Government has given me a course in Spinography, Spinal X-Ray and Post Graduate Course 
in Chiropractic at the Palmer School of Chiropractic, Davenport, Iowa. 

I have had the longest course of education in Chiropractic of any Chiropractor Practicing Chir- 
opractic in City to date. And the only Chiropractor in Fort Wayne, Graduate in Chiropractic from 
the Palmer School of Chiropractic. 

I practice nothing but Chiropractic and the very latest methods in our Science, and the first in 
Spinography in Fort Wayne, my method of analysis combined with the Spinouiaph X-Kay readings 
of Vertabral Subluration is Accurate. Absolutely No Guess Work. Certain conditions occasionly 
prevailed which baffled even the most skilled Chiropractic palpator and it is in these cases that the 
employment of the X-ray as a verifier of Chiropractor'? findings is utilized. Chiropractic Adjust- 
ments Scientifically given will insure you the blessing of this wonderful Science that is proving the 
means of restoring a very large number of sick and suffering to Health and Happiness. 

I occupy four large rooms, six dressing rooms for ladies and men, also resting rooms equipped
